Observation 6839: Chrysomphalina aurantiaca (Peck) Redhead

When: 2004-11-23

Collection location: Point Reyes National Seashore, Marin Co., California, USA [Click for map]

Who: Ron Pastorino (Ronpast)

No specimen available

Originally I wanted to call these Omphalina luteicolor but apparently Chrysomphalina aurantiaca is more accurate . What little detailed information I could find indicates that this species should have little hairs at the cap edges. I’m barely seeing that on the one specimen that is in focus in the closeup photo.
